September 11, 2010

Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinions starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaking suspicion... love actually is all around.

Hugh Grant as the Prime Minister, Love Acutally

Take some time today to hug your loved ones and tell them how much they mean to you. If they are far away, pick up the phone and call them. It's the perfect day to share some warm emotion with the people who mean most to you.
